Hotel Stay

It is what you'd expect it to be, a 3 star hotel. Across from Lulu's bar and grill.......about 1/2 mile from the beach. We didn't stay in the room much because we were sight seeing and going to the beach. As I said, average room, it did the trick.

Perfect roomy getaway.

This room was perfect for our needs. It had lots of room for two people. The furnishings were nice as well. It had a very comfortable king sized bed.

We would stay there again and have recommended the hotel to others. We aren't beach goers and Country Hearth is in a good location, was restful and quiet. It would help if another mirror was in the room itself instead of just the bathroom. No shelving in the bathroom for dental aids, cosmetics, hairdryer etc. I think someone else got the $$ tip left for the very nice woman who made sure we had plenty of towels, etc. My mistake.

Cheap and Close to the beach

We did not experience any trouble from staff. Room was clean when we arrived and cleaned daily. It's a little loud because it's so close to 59 but not too bad. The only problem is that the ac unit did not keep the room as cool as we would have liked it. Only a few minutes away from the beach. Close to restaurants and grocery store. Overall good experience

Driving down 59 takes you straight to the beach. There is plenty of free parking. Don't pay five dollars at the first lot you see

Don't Waster Your Money

This was one of the worst hotel experiences I've ever had. First, when we checked in (7/22/13) there was a family in front of us cancelling their room. That should have been our first clue. We got there an hour early and didn't expect our room to be ready, but as soon as the other family left they magically had a room available. When we got to the room the beds looked thrown together and the floor was damp, but unfortunately we ignored this out of exhaustion. We did find that the WiFi that was promised in the reservation was not available. Not even an hour later we noticed that it was significantly hotter than it was when we arrived. I tried to turn the knob to a colder setting and it just fell out of the air conditioning unit. Later that night we kept hearing buzzing and chirping in the room. I then spent the rest of the night going around the room just to kill all the bugs and spiders we found! There were much more than just the normal 'they just got through the cracks' amount. We eventually gave up and tried to go to sleep, although with it was hot and muggy with the air conditioner broken. My sister and I were both woken up several times finding that something was crawling on us. While getting ready to leave in the morning I found hair all over the shower and several dead bugs along the walls. We immediately went to the front desk to cancel the rest of our reservation. We were told that we would look into compensating us and would get a call as soon as things were sorted out. It has been two days now (7/24/13) and they refuse to give us any information except that they will call when they figure it out.
